Little Big Minds: Sharing Philosophy with Kids
Children are no strangers to cruelty and courage, to love and to loss, and in this unique book teacher and educational consultant Marietta McCarty reveals that they are, in fact, natural philosophers. Drawing on a program she has honed in schools around the country over the last fifteen years, "Little Big Minds" guides parents and educators in introducing philosophy to K-8 children in order to develop their critical thinking, deepen their appreciation for others, and brace them for the philosophical quandaries that lurk in all of our lives, young or old.
Arranged according to themes-including prejudice, compassion, and death-and featuring the work of philosophers from Plato and Socrates to the Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr., this step-by-step guide to teaching kids how to think philosophically is full of excellent discussion questions, teaching tips, and group exercises.
Teacher and educational consultant Marietta McCarty as been introducing philosophy to children, and guiding parents and educators in doing the same, for more than fifteen years. She has toured rural, suburban, and urban schools across the country, demonstrating her one-of-a-kind program. McCarty has a master's degree in philosophy from the University of Virginia and currently teaches philosophy at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia, and Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville.
